Great place well maintain. Had a good time here. If you opt to do a full day fishing you may be missing out some of the giant catches like I did! The fishing capacity fills out quick (which happened when we went) therefore plan your fishing days wisely. Heard some good stories on the size and species people catch will...

This is by far the most scenic resort we have been to. Incredible views and very attentive guides who do their upmost best to make sure you get the best experience for your money. The resort is very private and relaxing, with a clean and tidy apartment, a quiet pool and a great restaurant that serves traditional Thai dishes at...

I visited Gillhams in April 2016 for 6 days, with intention to visit the local town half of my time whilst I was there. From the very first day that I step foot into the resort, I immediately cancelled all that I've planned on those 'non-fishing' days and booked full fishing days for the duration of my stay there. Why?...

This place was the perfect day trip after a dreadful fishing experience in Phuket. We were picked up from our resort in Ao Nang on time and we had poles in the water around 830 am. My 15 year old son and I shared three poles. We had a lot of action throughout the day and caught 4 fish. 3...

What a beautiful place to be. Waking up to wonderful view and bungalows very good. the whole place is kept very nice and clean. Only criticism is the amount of bait given. Give cheap pellets to each swim for fishing instead of the halibut pellets which is what guides tell you you need, so have to buy them after spending...

Having fished a couple of freshwater lakes in Thailand over the years, my wife, Son and I decided that this year we had to pay Gillhams a visit as it looked fantastic.
